Sidi Sixty cycling shoes review

The Sidi Sixty celebrates the brand's 60th birthday - is this tech packed package a welcome gift for the consumer?

Cycling Weekly Verdict

A race shoe providing a seriously stiff carbon sole, developed to offer optimum power transfer. Adjustable vents at the sole are a surprisingly agreeable touch and there's plenty of wiggle room at the toe box. We found these came up larger than expected, so would advise - as per all cycling shoes - you try before you buy, and though the retention dial does offer minute adjustments, we still prefer a Boa. 

Reasons to buy

    Stiff sole

The Sidi Sixty is a celebratory shoe, designed to immortalise the 60th anniversary of the Italian brand.

Of course, for the consumer, what matters is what this shoe - handmade in Italy and costing £330 - is going to do for them. The new design promises pro level performance, with Sidi incorporating new materials designed to offer stiffness and comfort whilst keeping the weight low.
